Názov prednášky: Tellus Border - Soil Carbon and Peat Depth Assessment
Anotácia prednášky: The UN Framework Convention on Climate Change commits to reducing emissions of greenhouse gases by 12.5% between 1990 and 2012. Soil carbon stores and changes in these stores are a major component of the required annual returns of carbon stocks. As peat has a high proportion of soil carbon, it has become increasingly important to measure and model the carbon stock to facilitate a wider understanding of the issue. This is particularly important for Ireland, where some 16% of the surface is covered by peat bog. The talk presents application of spatial statistical techniques to correlate peat depths with airborne radiometric data for carbon stock modelling.
